Haven't been able to access my Blogger dashboard for a while so things have moved on a bit since my last post. As can be seen I've made progress on the swan itself now, as well as more work on the water. I think I'll complete the bird next and then add some more to the background on the right. I want this area a lot darker to bring the swan out more. I'm also hoping I can prevent the swan from looking too agressive, rather just stretching his wings and catching the breeze which is ruffling his feathers.
